Good News Bible: With Deuterocanonicals/Apocrypha [Good News Translation] Paperback – March 1, 2001

Amazon's description is inanaccurate, however. If you need the Deuterocanonicals/Apocrypha, this version in burgundy does not contain it. There are two versions sold by Amazon -- one with a blue cover and one with a burgundy cover. Both are marked as containing the Apocrypha. I bought the one that cost a little more assuming that it did contain the apocrypha, but it did not. I don't know if the blue cover version does contain them, but since it is less expensive I doubt it. I brought the mislabeling to Amazon's attention so I hope they correct the problem.
With or without the Apocrypha, I highly recommend this as an addition to anyone's Bible library.
A Great Bible for a young teen too!!! A great gift, everyone should have one! It also comes in large print and a children's version. Check out the Gospel of John on DVD, it's VERBATIM the Good News Translation! (My Godson who was only ten understood it and watched it all the way through!!!) I absolutely Love it!!! Both of these items are a must have! The Gospel of John God Bless You on Your Spiritual Journey, this will open the doors!!!
I bought this bible because I all ready own an old English version one, and me been second language I found it hard to understand. Then I found this bible and began to read it and understood nearly everything. Although I knew it was not as accurate as the original Old English Version, I was able to read through it with out having to use a dictionary or give it too much though of what they meat, loosing my interest in further reading the bible. Now I actually enjoy reading the bible more than ever and mostly because it's easy to read.
I recommend this bible to those that are beginning or just want a clearer wording to talk it over with other people. I also highly recommend it for second language readers.
This is a great bible and it has artistic images that goes along with some verses of Scripture which makes this also a great bible for kids and young adults :D ---- I have already given out 6 as gifts to my friends and family and I'm going to order more for my church members so we can study the complete bible which includes the Apocrypha books!
